    I use to brew a lot of beer years ago. Here in Colorado the Micro Brewery thing really took off about 10 years ago.
    I have a three burner brewing setup for out side with pumps and wort chillers. I brew using 2 row barley from England, and most of my Hops come from Germany. English ales are really good and fairly easy to make.
    Try using different yeasts, that really makes a difference.

    I too have done it the past. My new year resolution is to finish my out door kitchen and brew beer again and put it on tap at my tiki bar

    I brew 5 to 10 gallon batches, for me its a blast. drinkin the last brew while making the next, I'm usually a stout fan, my fav is a coffee stout. I usually brew scotish ale, wheat beers and stouts
    I am currently on a break, the waist was growin I'm wondering how much the hops is gonna cost when I'm ready to brew, the hops shortage doesn't sound good

    Let me know how the stout turned out as I am a big fan of stouts ( you might want to share the recipe if you really enjoy it ). I have brewed lots of beers. Malted barleys, hops and you name it. Making beer is really fun and you get to taste the results.

    Then If you brew your own, you might want to try an oatmeal stout, the oatmeal adds a great creamy feel to it, all my dry stouts get two cups of oatmeal in the mash

    for the most part it is easy, cleaning the equipment is the most important thing in brewing. You can order a kit from a supplier that come with all ingrediants and detailed instructions, real easy and good beer (for 5 gallons)
    just make sure you have enough bottles, i bought a few korny kegs and keg my beer so I can drink it that night

    having a bunch of 3/8 copper around I made a wort chiller,cools the wort in minutes
